The Bletchley Circle: Episode 1
The Bletchley Circle
Susan, noticing a pattern in a string of London murders, contacts her old friends from Bletchley — Millie, Lucy, and Jean — to try to identify the killer. Treating the crimes like a code to be cracked, the women gather all available information and evidence and then, through a sequence of clever deductions, determine how the killer is finding his victims.
Susan tells the other women that she came face to face with the killer — and he let her go. It soon becomes apparent that he’s becoming obsessed with her. Following the death of a former spy who had been helpful in identifying the perpetrator, the women consider whether to continue their pursuit, but they know if they don’t find the killer, he’ll move somewhere else and more girls will die.
